Snapchat’s lengthy-rumored digital camera glasses are actually real. The startup’s first foray into hardware shall be a pair of glasses referred to as “Spectacles” and can go on sale this fall for $129.ninety nine, according to The WSJ.
The glasses will solely are available one measurement, however will be available in three colours – black, teal and coral.
To start out recording you faucet a button on the aspect of the glasses. Video seize will mimic Snapchat’s app, which means you’ll be able to solely seize 10 seconds of video directly. This video will sync wirelessly to your telephone, presumably making it out there to share as a snap.
Apparently, the digital camera will use a one hundred fifteen-diploma lens (which is wider than a smartphone or common digital camera) and the video captured might be round. It’s not but clear how this video might be displayed within the app, however because the subject of view is so giant Snapchat might both crop it to a vertical format or replace the app to permit viewing of round views.
Whereas Spectacles shall be obtainable publicly someday this fall, Snapchat CEO Evan Siegal told the WSJ that they’ll have “restricted distribution” and never “be relied upon for vital fast income”. Because of this Spectacles might find yourself being like Google Glass when it first launched – formally on sale to the general public however fairly arduous to return by.
Oh, and in a possible nod to Apple’s now decade-old move to get rid of “pc” from its identify, Snapchat will dropping “chat” from its identify and rebranding to Snap Inc., as we had earlier speculated would happen. That’s a transfer to suggest that Snapchat the app isn’t the one product the corporate now makes.
